I liked Aikido because there were 'gears in the box'
What I mean is that each technique can be used to an appropriate level. If all you need is to get your attacker to back down by applying pain, that's what you do. If you need them to be incapacitated, that's what you do. If you need to break bones, that's what you do. The hard bit is getting the techniques ingrained into your muscle memory so they just happen without having to think - but that applies to all martial arts.
